PART 7 – David West preaches on “Christ in the epistle to the Galatians”, and in particular, the centrality of Christ’s cross in the epistle. The Cross – Ch 1: The centre of God’s purpose for us. Ch 2: The centre of God’s power in us. Ch 3: The centre of God’s promise to us. Ch 4: The centre of God’s heritage to us. Ch 5: The centre of God’s provision for us. Ch 6: The centre of our boast. Each chapter is linked to a deliverance for the people of God by the cross (Message preached 19th Oct 2017)
PART 7 – Josh Jacob preaches on Esther, the Jewish orphan girl who became the Queen of an empire. The narrative in the Bible book of Esther uniquely displays the “Master Weaver” – God – in action, not mentioned by name, but ever moving behind the scenes. Esther was “governed by His providence”, “grew according to His plan”, was “guarded by His power” and “guided by His purpose” (Message preached 16th Oct 2017)
PART 6 – Michael Penfold preaches on “Christ in the 1st epistle to the Corinthians”. After dividing the book into 5 sections, he shows how Paul brings two aspects of the person and work of Christ into each section as he seeks to correct and encourage the assembly in Corinth. For example, in Chs 1-4, “the power and wisdom of God in Christ” are set forth as the answer to the divisions in Corinth (Message preached 12th Oct 2017)
PART 5 – Dan Rudge preaches on “Christ in the epistle of Romans”. He highlights the 7 references to Christ as God’s “Son” in the epistle and develops the related themes of the person, proclamation, provision and purpose of the Son. In the second half of his message, he distinguishes between propitiation, redemption and justification and develops the theme of the believer’s death to sin in Chapter 6 (Message preached 5th Oct 2017)
PART 4 – Peter Scarsbrook preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of John”. After some helpful introductory remarks, Peter takes up numerous statements that other people made about Christ, starting with the words of John the Baptist in John Ch 1. Through these positive and negative comments, a fascinating portrait of the Son of God is brought before the hearer (Message preached 28th Sept 2017)
PART 3 – Scott Dunn preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of Luke”. Acknowledging that most expositors see Luke as emphasising the humanity of Christ, Scott contends that Luke’s main emphasis is on Christ as “Saviour”. He traces this theme, and the theme of “the plan of salvation”, through the early chapters of Luke in particular (Message preached 21st Sept 2017)
